Patients Are Never Too Old For Improving Smiles

Description:
Most people have a continuous need for looking their best… and this need does not stop during senior years. This video is about improving the smile of a soon to be 70-year old woman. Porcelain veneers were accomplished in a 2-day turn around using full contour pressable lithium disilicate.

Questions & Comments

Irene, I agree that etching and bonding all veneers at one time is stressful and therefore bonding 3 at a time is much easier to control the placement of the veneers. This gives you more time to initially clean up the margins and do preliminary finishing.

Thanks Dr. Goldstein for an excellent presentation. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Having treated patients in the past , who were terminally ill, I learned all about "Quality of life". Due to oral cancer treatment, some patients could not eat at all, however, I made them dentures, so they could smile and felt whole. And, by the way, I have the same workflow for veneers. But, I think, etching and bonding all preps would make me nervous, as the smallest amount of cementation paste contamination on an adjacent tooth could affect seating the next veneer. Regards

Thanks for asking the question, Sharon. First, I always have a consultation with my partner, Dr. Salama, who as you know is trained as both orthodontist and periodontist. If he feels that an orthodontic solution is not only best but practical as well then that is the way we go. However, in this case he agreed that a restorative option would be more practical for the patient. Therefore I began with the occlusal view and created a labio-occlusal line angle starting from the central/lateral to the 2nd molar, and that is where I decided the porcelain veneers would look reasonably good. Then I contoured the mandibular arch and pulled in #27 and #28 enough to create a better occlusion. If you look at the after occlusal view you will notice that #6 still is slightly labial but not noticable in the after smile. I do this treatment routinely when restoring crossbites via crowns, bonding, or veneers. there is another very similiar but much more dramatic on DentalXP that I did via bonding.

Dr Goldstein excellent presentation thank you How did you manage to improve the crossbite relationship with the veneers on #6 and #27? Do you just bring out the veneers more facially? Thank you!!

Bassam, the rational behind inserting the laterals last depends on whether the cuspids are better off cementing first after the bicuspids and if so then the laterals become the pivotal tooth in the arch. the reason is that one tooth must be the last piece of the puzzle and I can usually bond the bicuspids and even the cuspids easily. The centrals are to go in together so either the laterals or cuspids will be refitted next because there is always a microscopic(or macroscopic) difference in the fit after adjacent teeth are bonded. the posterior crown was Lithium Disillicate. And if the interdental papilla does not grow back as forecasted, then it is possible to make small porcelain pieces to fill in the spaces and they would be attached to one of the crowns to mask the space and I would bond porcelain to porcelain.

Dr.Gldstein, congratulations on such beautiful accomplishment. What is the rational behind inserting the lateral veneers the last? what material was the posterior crown made of? And last, what would you do if the black triangles do not get filled in?
Thanks.

great view.I total agree your outstanding opinion.

Smile Design and The Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototype (BFEP)
The lecture will cover some simple Photoshop techniques to enhance a smile digitally to present to the patient and motivate them to accept treatment. This lecture will mainly focus on the the step-by-step process of how to turn the 2-dimensional Photoshop smile design into a 3D Bonded Functional Esthetic Prototypes (BFEP’s) the patient wears to verify esthetic and functional acceptance. A very efficient technique using a new highly flowable but highly filled micro-hybrid that uses an injection molding tray technique will be demonstrated. A full arch composite bonding can be done in one hour with this technique. This BFEP technique can be used for “trial smiles” for pre-treatment esthetic and functional evaluation by the patient and the treatment team. It can also be used for long-term functional temporization for years if necessary. The BFEP will then be used as the final guide for preparations for Anterior Etched Ceramic restorations (porcelain veneers and glass ceramics.

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique

Clinical Performance of Porcelain Laminate Veneers: Outcomes of the Aesthetic Pre-evaluative Temporary (APT) Technique
The article evaluates the long-term clinical performance of porcelain laminate veneers bonded to teeth prepared with the use of an additive mock-up and aesthetic pre-evaluative temporary (APT) technique over a 12-year period. Sixty-six patients were restored with 580 porcelain lamintate veneers. Over 12 years, 42 laminate veneers failed, but when the preparations were limited to the enamel, the failure rate resulting from debonding and microleakage decreased to 0%. Porcelain laminate veneers presented a successful clinical performance in terms of marginal adaptation, discoloration, gingival recession, secondary caries, postoperative sensitivity, and satisfaction with restoration shade at the end of 12 years. The APT technique facilitated diagnosis, communication and preparation providing predictability for the restorative treatment. Limiting the preparation depth to the enamel surface significantly increases the performance of porcelain laminate veneers.
